Arduino vs. Raspberry Pi vs. CubieBoard vs. Gooseberry vs. APC Rock vs. OLinuXino vs. Hackberry A10

A long time ago, Earth was ruled by dinosaurs. Then they died and we began to play with Motorola HC11. These were prehistoric times, when debugging involved an oscilloscope. (Yes, I am that old.) Then Massimo Banzi invented a new single board: Arduino. And everyone was happy. Then the unexpected happened: David Braben invented the Raspberry Pi. The story does not end here: now we have CubieBoard, Gooseberry, APC Rock, OLinuXino, Hackberry A10, et caetera. Each one of them is different.

Arduino Uno vs BeagleBone vs Raspberry Pi The Monday Jolt is a new column about microcontrollers and electronics that appears in MAKE every Monday morning. This post was written by Roger Meike and appeared on the Digital Diner on October 24, 2012. It is reposted here on the MAKE site with permission. Left to right: Arduino Uno, BeagleBone, Raspberry Pi We like to build stuff here at Digital Diner. berryboot_a10 [BerryTerminal] Beta version for A10 devices If your A10 device comes with Android, simply point the Android webbrowser to: Download and install the .apk file found there Insert an empty SD card into your device In the Berryboot installer app: press the “write image” button and follow instructions. Bien choisir les accessoires de votre Raspberry Pi 2 La Raspberry Pi 2 est sortie et elle est absolument géniale. Plus rapide, plus puissante, toujours aussi abordable, et supportant désormais Windows 10. Lors de la sortie de la Raspberry Pi 2 nous vous avions dit que nous sortirions un guide pour vous aider à choisir les accessoires de votre Raspberry Pi 2, le voici. Nous allons découper ce tutoriel en trois parties, les accessoires obligatoires, ceux utiles, et ceux qui vous serviront dans des cas un peu spécifiques.

Building A PC? How To Get The Best Deals On Parts Building your own computer and want to get the best deals? You need a strategy that can score red-hot sales before they sell out. My preferred method uses a multi-spectrum approach, focusing on price-alert apps within a tight 14-30 day window. Here’s how it works: First, you set up a purchasing schedule inside a 30-day period. Second, you then track the prices of the parts you need using IFTTT or Yahoo Pipes. Cubieboard Un article de Wikipédia, l'encyclopédie libre. La Cubieboard est un nano-ordinateur sous forme d'ordinateur monocarte à bas prix (49 US$), basé sur des logiciels libres (mais ça n'est pas un matériel libre), permettant de faire tourner Android 4 ICS, ainsi que le système de bureau Ubuntu et d'autres distributions GNU/Linux, ou bien d'être utilisé comme un NAS. Cette carte utilise le SoC d'architecture ARM AllWinner A10 déjà populaire sur les tablettes tactiles, téléphones et PC média à faible coût. La 2e version la Cubieboard2 est équipée d'un SoC AllWinner A20 plus puissant. Le Cubietruck a suivi rapidement, la première série étant produite en septembre 2013 et la version finale fin octobre 2013.

RPi SD cards SD cards The SD card is a key part of the Raspberry Pi; it provides the initial storage for the Operating System and files. Storage can be extended through many types of USB connected peripherals. Update! UberFridge has been discontinued and has been replaced with BrewPi, a Raspberry Pi based brewing controller!I do not recommend building UberFridge anymore. Please go to UberFridge is a homebrew fermentation temperature controller that I have built from my old fridge. It runs on an Arduino Nano and an Asus WL520GU router. DIY NAS Enclosure for The Cubieboard The Cubieboard with a 1GHz processor, 1GB RAM, a SATA port and its low price ($49) is probably one the best available options if you want to make your own ARM based NAS. The hardware is easy to get, most of the software components (Linux, SAMBA/NFS server, Bittorrent client, etc…) are available, but there are no NAS enclosure available for the Cubieboard, so this part may be a little tricky. Cubieforums user Vustus has a pretty neat and cost- effective solution for an enclosure based on off-the-shelf parts.

Pas d’HDMI ? Adaptez la framboise314 au VGA et/ou au DVI Utiliser le Raspberry Pi sur la télé HD familiale est un vrai bonheur. Malheureusement, tous les membres de la famille ne sont pas linuxiens dans l’âme. Regarder un film ça va encore, mais quel intérêt de voir ces écrans de texte auxquels on ne comprend rien ? Il va falloir battre en retraite vers un écran de PC. Damned ! il n’y a pas de port HDMI !!! Bypass Capacitors – Why and How to Use Them? » You may have heard about the phenomenon of bypassing in circuits, however, we may not have sufficient knowledge of how to apply this technique in real circuits. In this tutorial, we will discuss about the bypass capacitors, why we need to use and how to use these capacitors in circuits. What is a Bypass Capacitor? A capacitor that filters out the AC signal removing the noise and provides a DC signal is known as a bypass capacitor. The capacitor connected in the figure below is a bypass capacitor bypassing AC noise and allowing pure DC signal to pass through the component. Operation of a Bypass Capacitor

Welcome - Welcome! Welcome to Spritesmods. At this site, I'll document my more interesting hacks for your viewing pleasure. While it's not updated that regularly, I try to add an article about every month. Ow, by the way: all the pictures are thumbnails. You can click on them to get the originals, straight from my camera. Arduino Home automation SuperHouse shows us how to control various items around your house using your arduino microcontroller as the brain. This system uses an etherten arduino to allow it to be controlled from the internet. Some stacked relay modules that talk via I2C are used to control external devices. Once mounted in the custom case the module looks great. Sample code is provided that allows the system to work as a simple webserver that has a button interface to allow you to turn the relays on and off via the web. “This episode shows the construction sequence of a controller that combines an Arduino-compatible board, Power-over-Ethernet, and relay driver shields to create a self-contained controller that can serve up its own web interface so you can click buttons in your browser to turn devices on and off.”

Ringing in 2015 with 40 Linux-friendly hacker SBCs · [Updated Jan 5, 2015] — 2014 brought us plenty of new open-spec, community-backed SBCs — from $35 bargains, to octa-core powerhouses — and all with Linux or Android support. In May of this year, LinuxGizmos and collaborated on a joint survey, asking our readers to choose their favorite open-spec hacker SBCs from a list of 32 that run Linux and/or Android. Our SBC survey winners, ranked one to five, included the Raspberry Pi, BeagleBone Black, Odroid-XU, CubieTruck, and Banana Pi single board computers. Thanks to the flood of new open-spec, community-backed boards, as well as the demise of others, we have updated our list for this end-of-year snapshot. We’re skipping the survey — and the prizes — this time around, but we hope to offer a similar, but updated list and survey in May or June 2015. With even better prizes.

RS-232 and other serial ports and interfaces pinouts diagrams Apple Thunderbolt The Thunderbolt is the propriteary interface allows the connection of external peripherals to a computer. It combines PCI Express and DisplayPort into one serial signal alongside a DC connection for electric power, transmitted over one cable.EIA/TIA-562 serial interface TIA/EIA-562 is a very similar to TIA/EIA-232-F with data rates up to 64 kbps supported.EIA/TIA-694 serial interface This is an electrical standard, similar to RS-232-F, but with data rates up to 512 kbps support.ITU-TSS V.35 interface Basically, V.35 is a high-speed serial interface designed to support both higher data rates and connectivity between DTEs or DCEs over digital lines.PC serial port (RS-232 DE9) This RS232C DE-9 (usually miscalled DB-9) port is available in most PCs and many other devices. RS-449 (EIA-449) interface The RS449 interface is a generic connector specification. It´s not an actual interface.
